A few hours to myself this afternoon saw me heading for a couple of local spots really to try and get some nice pics of the winter scenery.Very little was seen bird wise at Messingham as every area of water was frozen solid apart from 2 areas on the main lake and the woodland seemed very quiet apart from the odd Treecreeper or Coal Tit calling,but this didn't matter at all as the wintery landscape made up for a lack of birds.After visiting MSQ,i made the short journey over to Scawby Park,again to try and get some snowy pics.The only bird sighting of note here was a single Nuthatch close to the village entrance around the church,but again it was the snow and extensive haw frost which really made today special,a real pleasure to be out and about.
